The Network exists to give producers a trusted and supportive base which will enable their directors to maximize the creative potential of their projects, efficiently.
Our twenty-one year history of high quality production and premium service confirms the professionalism and adaptability of our team, which has a reputation for rapid, concise and reliable responses to all production needs – from pitch to wrap.
The Network has produced for all advertising categories and genres of film. We have produced international campaigns for financial institutions, cars, beauty, food, fashion, real-estate, PSAs and more. Recent productions include global brand campaigns and top secret launches.
The Network’s production expertise and connections extend far beyond our South African base. We are well versed in international logistics and have produced in, or for more than forty countries around the planet. Lately our focus has been on Asia, however, recent productions for Canada and the US illustrate the appeal of our approach.
The Network builds durable, fair relationships with clients, crews and suppliers, based on transparency, respect and communication. We’ve earned a reputation for attention to detail, thorough preparation and well managed shoots.
The Network approach is streamlined, transparent and pragmatic and based on ongoing engagement with our clients to ensure no detail or need (specific equipment, dietary or cultural) is overlooked. Network budgets are designed to give clients a realistic picture of all elements required to fully deliver their projects while protecting their margins and upstream relationships. We do not arbitrarily ‘price dump’ to win jobs but work to deliver the tightest of margins as specified by client.
The Network is home to some very experienced industry professionals with a broad skills base which includes special effects design, digital alchemy and remote logistics. The Network team is at home with film, digital, virtual reality, 3D, augmented reality and all aspects and genres of stills and filmmaking. This allows us to support clients more closely and provides an extended resource when finding solutions to the widest range of production challenges.
